I was diagnosed with Pmr a year ago but my Dr always thought I had something else going on. I have had x rays done that the results came back as showing no signs of arthritis in my hands or neck.I have seen a few rheumies. The last but one said that as my blood tests showed no RA and my x rays were normal I must have Seronegative arthritis. I had a mistake extra rheumy appointment and he looked at my x rays and said that yes I had signs of arthritis in both my hands and neck.I was started on Hydroxychloroquine about seven weeks ago and so far they do not seem to be working.
My question is does anyone have any symptoms like mine and what are you being treated with and for?
I have pains some days in my shoulders. Some days I wake up and my hands feel normal but within a little while of moving about they start aching and throbbing like toothache. My wrists can be very bruised feeling and at times very weak. I have trouble squeezing playdough with my grandson on some days. Where ever I look at symptoms of arthritis or seronegative arthritis I do not see any similarities to my symptoms.I wonder if I am misdiagnosed.
